    In an extensive interview with Ebony, the star wondered why there wasn’t more discussion about why Michael Brown exhibited the behavior he did in the convenience store, which Williams described as “bullyish.”


    “It looked very bullyish; that in itself I had a problem with,” Williams said, referring to released surveillance video that allegedly shows Brown forcefully stealing cigarillos from a store shortly before he was fatally shot by Officer Darren Wilson. “Not with the kid, but with whatever happened in his life for him to arrive at a place where that behavior is OK. Why aren’t we talking about that?”

    I happen to agree with this black man, at least on this part.

    Cops are supposed to bully bullies. That's their job.

    Michael Brown should have been punished under the law for stealing the cigarillos and pushing the store clerk.

    He should not have been summarily executed.

    Would you feel differently if Officer Wilson had been killed by the bully?

    There was no summary execution. He was killed while attacking an armed officer.

    No cops aren't to bully bullies. They are charged with investigating crimes, part of that stopping and questioning suspects. Cursing cops and throwing stuff at them is a bad start in the wrong direction.

    Nope.

    I'm stating as a fact that Norm accepts the word of white guys who kill black guys as the Gospel truth.

    Why the difference in Cali, when it was I who was opposed to the cops burning out a black suspect who was contained. You defended in that case the summary execution of the black cop.

    A) He was shooting at the cops;

    B) He killed himself.
